is a table with four products on it.  No matter what I do, that table
appears left aligned in IE 5.0 and 6.0.  How can I get the whole table

Hello Holstein13,

To center the table containing the four products, please search for
the following line:
    <td width="568" valign="top" height="437">

- Remove the "width" attribue-value pair of that td-opening tag.
- Put the attribute align="right" into the next td following that tag,
the one of the nested table.
- Check the result, and if needed, also change <div align="center">
inbetween those two td-tags to <div align="right"> (that, or
style="text-align: right").

Hope this helps.

Your site's shell sure resembles Apple's.

Can't believe Apple copied me like that ;-)

Other than that, what do you think of the site?
